Online option for 2013 Census expected to be popular

Online option for 2013 Census expected to be popular


More than 2 million census forms are expected to be completed online in the 2013 Census, General Manager 2013 Census Carol Slappendel says.

“In 2006, just 7 percent of completed census forms were filled out online. Statistics New Zealand is aiming for 35 percent in 2013.

“Completing your forms online is secure, quick, and easy. If everyone in your household completes their forms online, a collector may not need to call back.

“All forms completed online will be encrypted to ensure your information is protected by a high level of security.

“The online forms can be completed in English or Māori.

“To do your census forms online you will need an Internet Access Code and your paper forms. Census collectors will deliver these to every dwelling in New Zealand between 16 February and census day on 5 March 2013.

“On census day, everyone in New Zealand must complete an individual census form. A form also needs to be completed for every dwelling.

“The information collected will be used by government, local government, and many others to make well-informed decisions for our country and communities in the future,” Carol Slappendel says.
